I have been going through periods of Dead history that I haven't been familiar with in my almost 30 years of being a deadhead. I just started diving into summer 1978 after hearing the Giants Stadium show on the GD channel on SiriusXM and really enjoying it (Latvala was right on about the greatness of Scarlet>Fire.) So I grabbed some of the shows that preceded Giants Stadium. They seem to be getting mixed reviews. I really enjoy this show; there is some hiss in the quieter parts, but it's an AUD from 78, not 93. The energy seems to come from "rock star Bob, but he provides a good Yin to Garcia's Yang that night (he seemed to be in a more mellow mood - his vocals are smooth and soulful.) All in all, it's a nice listen and a solid, but not historic performance.

Terrapin is complete here.
It is the SBD that has the cut. (Just to correct comment down below.)

...quoth the Deadhead near the mikes. :-)
Nice to hear the reaction to the first live performance of Shakedown Street. You could tell the crowd was getting into the first and maybe only truly disco song the Dead ever did (and remember, this was a year after Saturday Night Fever). Yeah, they were diggin' it, not having an inkling of the massive beast it was to become! :-D

'it crackled like a thundercloud'
Jerry presents us with a truely wonderful funky raw first presentation of the great 'Shakedown Street'. You can just imagine the Red Rock's Crowd, watch in awe as Jerry brings it forth. Great vocals, and a nice audience recording too. By the by...'Shakedown' > 'Good Lovin' has Bobby talking us through. Good Fun.

What a dirty, dirty shame
What could have been a great download turns sour, sour, sour during Terrapin. OOOOh, there is such a nasty cut when the train is coming into the station. I never got to hear the whistle scream "TERRAPIN", and I am bitter, moody and sullen.
Drums and space is great. There is a definite Egypt foreshadowing.
